I'm thrilled to announce that I will be supporting the Manic Street Preachers on July 9th at the Eden Project in Cornwall. It's such a huge honour to be asked by Mr. Nicky Wire who was something of a surrogate teacher for me growing up. The Manics are a band that completely changed and shaped my life, turning me into a book-bothering library fiend who was the first in my family to go to university... All because of a rock and roll band. I feel I can safely retire now knowing that my 12 year old self would feel satisfied with how things turned out! Hope to see some of you there.
